There was standing water on the outfield at Edgbaston in mid-morning today and as further drizzle continued to fall, prevent any drying of the grass, the match was abandoned following a 2pm inspection by the umpires.

The washout leaves Derbyshire still unbeaten in a North Group table which remains extremely tight, with all still to play for with the rain having bitten so deeply into the early games.
